an acog just doesnt work on a thumping rifle like a 45/70 the eye rlief is waaaay to short and you will bash your face in using one on that gun. its just funny looking.

a typical lever gun doesnt even utilize a scope much less a rail system. leverguns that are scoped are either a scope or irons. this new xs combo rail lets me keep my irons and utilize a qd scope mount in case something happens to the optics i can switch to the iron sights or just take the scope off for fast movers like yotes and pigs. all without tools. then stick the scope back on and im back to a magnified optic.

its heresy to a cowboy type but i dont care i would rather have versatile usable ghost ring sights that crappy v-notch sights.

45/70s were tested in the 1800s for mile shots, Hope your Acog has enuff clicks on the dials to adjust for the arch.

ACOG. it stands for advanced combat opticial gunsight..

LOL no im not going to be using it on that gun its my optic for my bcm lghtweight middy. ive got a qd mount coming in on tuesday from midwest industries. the owner is getting me one as he didnt have any at his storefront when i stopped in today. im going to be using a nikon 1-4x african monarch. its a good solid scope that stands up to the abuse put out by a 458 winmag

midwest industries are truly an awesome progun bunch of folks making great products and they truly go above and beyound to get what the customer wants.

Thank you for the explanation. I get it now. And Jon, you have always marched to your own drummer with your guns.

I hope to get a Henry Lever rifle and I would like to scope it. I didn't realize lever action guns aren't typically scoped.

I didn't know that. Thanks.

Man, that Mossy lever gun is like the ugly chick in a bar at 2AM. Sure she'll get the job done but you don't want you friends to see you with her.
